This is a place for me to track recipes we try. Sometimes we like the recipe, sometimes we do not, and sometimes only one or two members of our family like the recipe. I try to cook from scratch and we try to avoid processed foods. As such some of the recipes I post can sometimes be a little time consuming. I also try to buy and cook with locally grown organic products. I am willing to pay a little more to achieve this goal. If I can't find local organic I buy locally produced foods and then organic foods from elsewhere. I'm a big supporter of the "eat local" idea. I do belong to 2 different CSA's here in Utah, I buy from Crossroads Urban Center's food co-op, and I am a frequent shopper at local farmer's markets.
So I originally posted this recipe a few years back but way back then I really didn't or couldn't figure out how to get a decent picture. Now that I have a new computer (loving the Mac and so glad I went with it) and a new camera (still learning it but getting better) I thought I'd start replacing some old recipes with horrible pictures with new and better looking pictures. First up is the Sizzler Cheese Toast. I don't know about you but my favorite thing about Sizzler is the cheese toast. I could make a whole meal with just the cheese toast if they would let me. Now mine isn't exactly like Sizzler's cause I prefer more garlic flavor (warning cut back on the garlic powder if you don't like to have a real taste of garlic). This is a simple recipe that even a beginner cook could make and it really doesn't call for any stranger or obscure ingredients. If your like me and love Sizzler cheese toast give this knock off a try.
Sizzler Cheese Toast
6 slices Texas Toast bread
1/2 stick butter, softened at room temperature
1 tablespoon garlic powder (use less if you don't like the garlic flavor, probably about 1/2 to 1 teaspoon)
1/4 teaspoon salt
1/4 cup shredded parmesan cheese
Mix butter,salt, and garlic powder together. Preheat a griddle. Spread butter mixture on bread and sprinkle with cheese. Place buttered/cheese side down on the griddle and cook until brown. Remove and serve.
